Democrats and Revolutionaries

Nelson Mandela and JFK

The CIA, under Kennedy, tipped off the apartheid South African regime in 1962 about Mandela’s whereabouts. In 1990, the Cox News Service quoted a former U.S. official saying that within hours after Mandela’s arrest, a senior CIA operative named Paul Eckel admitted the agency’s involvement. Eckel was reported as having told the official, quote, "We have turned Mandela over to the South African security branch. We gave them every detail, what he would be wearing, the time of day, just where he would be. They have picked him up. It is one of our greatest coups."

Several news outlets have reported the actual source of the tip that led to the arrest of Mandela was a CIA official named Donald Rickard.

Rickard denied the reports in an interview with The Wall Street Journal, but refused to talk about his time in South Africa.

Che Guevara and LBJ

"The last Latin American democracy – that of Jacobo Arbenz – failed as a result of the cold premeditated aggression carried out by the United States. Its visible head was the Secretary of State John Foster Dulles, a man who, through a rare coincidence, was also a stockholder and attorney for the United Fruit Company." Che.

In 1967 United States President Lyndon B. Johnson, Félix Rodríguez, a Cuban exile turned CIA Special Activities Division operative and Nazi war criminal Klaus Barbie, a.k.a. "The Butcher of Lyon", advised and helped the CIA orchestrate Che Guevara's capture and execution.

White House Memorandum, October 11, 1967

In another daily update, Walt Rostow reports to President Johnson that "we are 99% sure that 'Che' Guevara is dead." Rostow believes the decision to execute Guevara "is stupid," but he also points out his death "shows the soundness of our 'preventive medicine' assistance to countries facing incipient insurgency--it was the Bolivian 2nd Ranger Battalion, trained by our Green Berets from June-September of this year, that cornered him and got him."

State Department Cable, Official Confirmation of Death of Che Guevara, October 18, 1967

Ten days after his capture, U.S. Ambassador to Bolivia, Douglas Henderson, transmitted confirmation of Guevara's death to Washington. The evidence included autopsy reports, and fingerprint analysis conducted by Argentine police officials on Che's amputated hands. (Che's hands were cut off to provide proof that he was actually dead; under the supervision of CIA agent Gustavo Villoldo, his body was then secretly buried by at a desolate airstrip at Villagrande where it was only discovered in June 1997.)

Mossadegh and Eisenhower
Iranians elected Mossadegh prime minister in 1951. Quickly, the leader moved to nationalize oil production in the country -- a move that would have been a serious blow to US oil companies.

Shortly after Mossadegh's election, the CIA began to plan his overthrow. The goal of the coup was to elevate the strength of Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi and appoint a new prime minister -- Gen. Fazlollah Zahedi.
Before the coup, the agency -- along with the British Secret Intelligence Service -- helped foment anti-Mossadegh fervor using propaganda, according to CIA documents. In Iran, CIA and SIS propaganda assets were to conduct an increasingly intensified effort through the press, handbills and the Tehran clergy in a campaign designed to weaken the Mossadeq government in any way possible.
On August 19, 1953, the coup swung into full effect as the CIA and British intelligence agency helped pull pro-Shah forces together and organized large protests against Mossadegh.
"The Army very soon joined the pro-Shah movement and by noon that day it was clear that Tehran, as well as certain provincial areas, were controlled by pro-Shah street groups and Army units," Wilber wrote. "By the end of 19 August ... members of the Mossadeq government were either in hiding or were incarcerated."
In order to provide Zahedi, the country's new prime minister, with some stability, the "CIA covertly made available $5,000,000 within two days of Zahedi's assumptions of power."
After the coup, Mossadegh was sentenced to death, but the sentence was never carried out. The former leader died in Tehran in 1967.
The CIA spells out its involvement in the coup. "The military coup that overthrew Mossadeq and his National Front cabinet was carried out under CIA direction as an act of U.S. foreign policy, conceived and approved at the highest levels of government," the CIA document says.
The Shah ruled for the next 26 years until the 1979 Islamic revolution.
Next time...
I do not believe that anything has happened at the CIA since Nelson Mandela's arrest or the overthrow of a democratically elected government in Iran to suggest that their behavior has improved. So next time our President tells you and mind you it does not matter if that President is a democrat or a republican, you need to remember that he or she is telling you a bold face lie.

Regardless if it's about WMD or imminent terrorist plots or whatever. The US has always been racist, homophobic, fascist, relying on slavery or immigrants or over seas sweat shop labor to support their gluttony. And the CIA/US will kidnap, detain without charges and torture any civilian living any where in the world, and get away with it.
No one is safe. The NSA proved that, the US even spies on the Pope. And should he ever get out of line, guess what, it doesn't matter if you are Italian, German or Canadian the CIA will hunt you down, torture you and murder you and there's nothing that anyone can do to stop them....
Raymond Allen Davis is a former United States Army soldier, private security firm employee, and contractor with the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). On January 27, 2011, Davis killed two reportedly armed men in Lahore, Pakistan. Although the U.S. government contended that he was protected by diplomatic immunity because of his employment with the U.S. Consulate in Lahore, Davis was jailed and criminally charged by Pakistani authorities with double murder and the illegal possession of a firearm. A car coming to aid Davis killed a third Pakistani man in a "hit and run" while speeding on the wrong side of the road. On March 16, 2011, Davis was released after the families of the two killed men were paid $2.4 million in diyya (a form of monetary compensation or blood money). Judges then acquitted him on all charges and Davis immediately departed Pakistan.
The corporations own everything. Every mine, every piece of property, every bank, every government, all schools, all media outlets and they have released this statement:
"People of the earth, now that we own everything, even your politicians and political process we are giving you two options, "free will" to choose, either you play by our rules or you can live in the streets.

Your choice.

And we change the rules whenever we feel like it. And, playing by the rules is no guarantee. Simply meaning that many innocent people have been arrested, tried and convicting and many were even executed. Also drugs that we provide you when you become ill, might kill you. Also be warned that at any time we may increase production causing lay offs and recessions at which time we will repossess your belongings and auction off your homes. Any questions?"
